An early morning fire in Crescent City is being investigated as suspicious. The fire broke out shortly before 4 am at a double-wide on Cummins Road. Fire crews arrived to find the mobile home engulfed in flames as well as a sedan in the yard. Additional units were called in from Pelican Bay, Fort Dick Volunteer Fire Department, Del Norte County Sheriff deputies, and dispatch as well as crews from Pacific Power and Light. Officials learned that the trailer has been vacant for several years as well as reports of transient activity in the vicinity. No one was injured; no other structures suffered any damaged thanks to the efforts of the 15 volunteer firefighters who extinguished the blaze.

The Mental Health Division of the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services will be hosting a few public meetings to discuss the Mental Health Services Act, also known as M-H-S-A. Officials are hoping to inform the public about the three-year-plan, and also get feedback from the community. The Humboldt County Department of Health says that gathering input is vital to drafting the plan that will outline the county’s M-H-S-A-funded programs from 2020 through 2023. Back in 2004, voters passed Prop 63 known as M-H-S-A, which placed a 1% tax on personal incomes that exceeds one million dollars to fund the development and expansion of mental health services for all ages. The first meeting will be this Tuesday at the Jefferson Community Center in Eureka on B street from noon until 1:30 pm. The second meeting is for Friday the 24th from noon until 1:30 pm at the Blue Lake Community Resource Center on Greenwood Avenue. Lunch will be served at this meeting, so you will need to RSVP by Wednesday the 22nd.
